Gone Walking and Other Departures
Gone Walking and Other Departures is a rumination on impermanence and the grief that comes with this truth. The poems grapple with losses big and small, creating holding space for each. These poems are rooted in dreamscapes and the natural world alike, where moonbeams, Adirondack skies, and descending fog mingle with spirit.
"Like a burning barrel itself, these poems invite us with their warmth, intensity, and a certain element of danger on occasion."
-Donald J. McNutt, Editor, Blueline
"Grab a cup of tea, escape to the back porch, read them as the sun sets. Learn that life is sweet."
-Charles Watts, Waking Up in a Beautiful Room
